Paige Higgins: 1st American female finisher at the Boston Marathon

The Flagstaff newspaper (which does a really good job of covering running locally, state wide, and Nationally) ran an article about Flagstaff resident Paige Higgins, and her redemption of being the top American female finisher after having to pull out last year due to an injury.  I have had to miss a few races due to injury and hated it, but for an elite who lives and breathes running and worked so very hard, I imagine it was much more crushing.

Congrats to Paige for her efforts! Congrats to her coaches and trainers with McMillan Elite for their hard work with her.

Oh yeah, the story can be found HERE

About runfaraz

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
